Taking up the case for local GPs

I now have thoughts from local GPs about the current and proposed funding settlement for our local GP services. I will be taking this up with Ministers, and stressing to them the fast growth in patient numbers we are currently experiencing as a result of new housing provision and new families coming to settle in our area. We need to make sure there is enough cash available to expand our local GP service, and that local GPs feel the settlement is a fair one for what they do.
